Al, Ayesha and Valerie find themselves a long way from The Mill when they go LARPing and do battle with all kinds of beasties!

It all goes a bit Dungeons and Dragons in Letherbridge today, when Dr Al Haskey, nurse Ayesha Lee and surgery receptionist Valerie Pitman go LARPing!

But while Al and Valerie are super-excited about trying out some Live Action Role Playing, Ayesha is regretting agreeing to join them. Especially when she's feeling hungover and can barely be bothered to make an effort with her costume!

However, as the fantasy adventure gets underway, Ayesha may be needed to come to the rescue when poor Valerie is struck down by a goblin and Al is defeated by an orc, Grognor!

Simon Timblick

Simon has long been a fan of soap operas, and especially loves OVER-THE-TOP plots involving evil twins, hair-pulling catfights and natural disasters. Anyone remember the Sunset Beach earthquake/tidal wave? Or when Krystle Carrington got locked in the attic and replaced by look-a-like Rita in Dynasty?!

Simon has written for a variety of TV and childrens’ magazines/websites including Inside Soap, Nickelodeon, What’s On TV, Radio Times, Metro, Girl Talk, Disney Girl, Toxic! and Digital Spy. He has reported LIVE from the red carpet at The British Soap Awards interviewing glammed-up stars from soapland, and hosted a Facebook LIVE session for Metro with Home and Away legend Ray Meagher (Alf "Stone the flamin' crows!" Stewart) to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Aussie soap.

Simon is also co-author of The Treasures Of Coronation Street (Carlton Books)

And the writer and director of (very!) low budget fright flick, Midsummer Night's EVIL and the sequel webisodes series, The Hatchet Woods HORROR.
